Job interview next week

I have my smaller dog beside me here, like I do basically every night. She is just the best. Monday was the 1 year anniversary of the day we got her ("gotcha day") and the day we dubbed her birthday,

BONUS - Sudbury Saturday Night - Stompin' Tom Connors - Oh Canada

<context, Inco is the mine in Sudbury>

[spoiler]

Da girls are out to Bingo and the boys are gettin' stinko,
And we think no more of Inco on a Sudbury Saturday night.
The glasses dey will tinkle when our eyes begin to twinkle,
And we'll think no more of Inco on a Sudbury Saturday night.

With Irish Jim O'Connel der and Scotty Jack MacDonald,
Dere's honky Fredrick Hurchell gettin' tight, but dat's alright,
Dere's happy German Fritzy der with Frenchy getting tipsy,
And even Joe da Gypsy knows it's Saturday tonight.

Now when Mary Ann and Mabel come to join us at the table,
And tell us how the Bingo went tonight, we'll look a fright.
But if dey won da money, we'll be lappin' up da honey, boys,
'Cause everything is funny, for it's Saturday tonight

Da girls are out to Bingo and da boys are gettin' stinko,
And we think no more of Inco on a Sudbury Saturday night.
The glasses dey will tinkle when our eyes begin to twinkle,
And we'll think no more of Inco on a Sudbury Saturday night.

We'll drink da loot we borrowed and recuperate tomorrow,
'Cause everything is wonderful tonight, we had a good fight,
We ate the Dilly Pickle and we forgot about the Nickel,
And everybody's tickled, for it's Saturday tonight!

The songs that we'll be singin', they might be wrong but dey'll be ringin',
When the lights of town are shining bright, and we're all tight,
We'll get to work on Monday, but tomorrow's only Sunday,
And we're out to have a fun day for it's Saturday tonight.

OH CANADA

 

214.YM - Freewill - Rush

 

You knew it was coming.  One of my favorite Rush songs. I still remember listening to this for the first time at my buddy Matt’s house.  It was the first time I ever listened to a Rush record (I was 10 at the time). The rest is (a foggy) history.

Round 214.xx

Category: Stevie Wonder Radio

Song: I Don't Know Why (AKA Don't Know Why I Love You)

Artist: The Rolling Stones

I don't why I'd pick a cover version of an artist that needs no covers done by the Stones, but this sort of jumped out at me in the covers thread of Stevie Wonder over at the Steve Hoffman boards. It's well done.

They were recording this song in the studio when the rest of the band got the call the Brian Jones had drowned.

19th Century 

Rd 215: Romeo and Juliet Fantasy Overture by Tchaikovsky

It’s  19 minutes but the romantic period is full of rather lengthy pieces. I don’t think Pyotr got chosen for the Symphony Hall list and he certainly deserves a mention among the all time great composers. This piece has such incredible themes of romance, conflict and violence, capturing the play quite well.

I love The Bridge I have my own playlist that's 28 hours long, lol, nice to have an additional alternative so let me throw one more in before it closes up shop.  Incredible no Cat has been drafted yet, an amazing songwriter and a perfect 70's vibe for this playlist...

Round 215:

60s on 6

On the Way Home -- Buffalo Springfield

Hitting #82, this was the highest-charting song in the '60s written by Neil Young. Mr. Soul was a B-side. The Loner, Burned and an edited version of Down by the River didn't chart. Cinnamon Girl didn't chart until 1970. Expecting to Fly and Nowadays Clancy Can't Even Sing charted even lower than this.

It may also be the most "60s" sounding of Neil's '60s songs, with a peppy arrangement adorned with horns and strings and a lead vocal by Richie Furay, whose voice was more suited for commercial radio than Neil's. In contrast to the music, the lyrics lament the band's impending breakup. 

A very different arrangement with Neil singing appears on the CSNY live album Four Way Street.

The vet's office called me this morning to tell me that they got back a portion of Cole's tests, and it was normal, but the blood for the other portion went bad, and so they need to redraw his blood.  :hot:  He ate three bites this morning, and so I have to wait until 4:30 to bring him in to get his blood drawn, because he has to fast for 8 hours. I told her Cole is withering away, and we are no closer to find out what is wrong. A month 1/2 this has been going on. She said his test should come back faster now that the lab is back on track. If it comes back normal, all this waiting is for nothing, when we could have been checking out other things. The vet wants to wait to see what it says before moving on to other tests. I am so exasperated, and my mood is awful. Beware.

Listened to a couple channels yesterday that weren't my cup of tea (or cup of coffee) in Coffee House and Pop2K.  Still got some good songs that I hadn't heard before though:

Coffee House - Frightened Rabbit, Steve Forbert, Milk Carton Kids, one other I forgot to write down.

POP2k - Robyn, Grace Potter, Dandy Warhols, Ladytron

We've been doing this so long, I can't remember which channels I've given a full listen to and which I haven't.  I have Lithium written down on my retired channels list, but don't know if I gave it a final spin, or just as we went.  Same with 70s.  

Anyway forgive me if I repeat myself about a channel or two... :lol:

Thought I was going to see or even be a part of a giant fireball of death. I went out to the parking lot for a smoke while my paint was drying and heard the loud thud of a car crash. I turned around to look and saw a minivan speeding thru the lot of the gas station next door and then slamming into a bank of pumps:eek: Luckily it hit the concrete post at the end and not the pumps themselves so no fire or explosion but it gave me a good scare. I was about 100 feet from the impact so could have been injured in a blast. There were 2 other cars and at least 8 people within 10 feet of the pumps that couldve been blown to bits.

Thought I was going to see or even be a part of a giant fireball of death. I went out to the parking lot for a smoke while my paint was drying and heard the loud thud of a car crash. I turned around to look and saw a minivan speeding thru the lot of the gas station next door and then slamming into a bank of pumps:eek: Luckily it hit the concrete post at the end and not the pumps themselves so no fire or explosion but it gave me a good scare. I was about 100 feet from the impact so could have been injured in a blast. There were 2 other cars and at least 8 people within 10 feet of the pumps that couldve been blown to bits.

There’s not an appropriate reaction available for that post. We need a Holy #### reaction

Yeah. When I texted my wife the story I used 3 of the poop emojis. This was at the Speedway at 375 and Jefferson. All the traffic only goes the opposite direction from where the van came from so no idea HTF it happened.

Glad everybody and you are ok - now I can crack jokes.  

My first reaction was that it sounded like you were in a real life anti-smoking commercial, since this happened as you stepped outside for a smoke. ;)

wtf?  I thought searched the spreadsheet this am.  

It's listed as "The Sounds of Silence." That might have thrown it off. Sounds of Silence was the album, "The Sound of Silence" is the name of the song, best I can suss out.

Did he take the softer version for The Bridge?

And these guys have only been drafted as a bonus selection...

211.NV - Mr. Brightside - The Killers - Don't Worry Be Happy

This came on the radio while I was out running errands and true to the category, made me feel so happy.

Also made me think, is this the most enduring "rock" song of the 00s? I think it certainly would be in the UK where it still charts every year and is the standard end of night song at pubs, etc.. but maybe in North America too? I feel like it ended up way more mainstream than all the big Strokes, Franz, Arcade Fire, Arctic Monkeys etc...  Others that I thought of are Seven Nation Army, Float On, Yellow and the two big MGMT singles, but I'm not sure they still get as much widespread play as Mr. Brightside does these days.

Category idea: TV on the Radio (not the band).

Songs associated with TV shows or episodes. We've done TV themes and movie and tv soundtracks a lot but I can think of a lot of TV shows where either bands showed up on the show, or the music that played over a pivotal scene was absolutely crucial or just generally the many many ways songs and music are used in TV*, hell, it was most of the reason I watched The OC. 

:shrug:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

*also yes, I started watching Bridgerton last night and that may have put this idea in my head.

215.NV - Runaway - Del Shannon - 60s on 6

Almost picked Screeching Weasel's cover of this during the covers portion of our program. Clocking in at a whole thirty-three seconds, Ben Weasel encapsulates Del's anguish in condensed punk rock form.

Why why why why why

I'd agree with this. Somehow it held up through the years. I've played it so much that I prefer others off of the album. The opening strains are instantly recognizable, but so is Franz, The Strokes, and others. I think this one had the most crossover appeal because of the lyrical twists involved.

Very much in play with 7 Nation Army. Michigan plays the song every football game and the student section sings a long. They cut the music for the chorus and the whole student section keeps going. It’s pretty cool, especially considering the song is older than many of the kids.
